Could only find 33 1/3...but then again, didn't feel like digger any deeper into that bin.

What a stupid setup for selling movies!

Does anyone else think that the companies are just getting rid of all these older versions to make way for new special edition ones?

I only saw the first 2, however they're both anamorphic and 5.1 sound........in my eyes they are special editions and for $5.50 a pop.

I only found 1 and 3 at my Wally-world. Also Airplane! 2, but not 1. Gotta search a few others around...

Way to help fill in my ZAZ collection...

The same thing crossed my mind, which made me think twice at first, but then I was satisfied with the audio, anamorphic wide screen, commentaries, and decent (not perfect) video, especially for the $5.50 price tag. I doubt anything could be added in a different release that would induce me to double-dip. I watched everything this weekend after not having seen the movies in years, and it is still every bit as funny to me now as it was then.

got all three.
got the first two the first time at wm
wasnt complete without the thirs film.
got the third one a few weeks later at wm
walked over to the bin and saw it sticking out between movies,like someone pulled it up,but didnt plasce it down with the other films on the bins.

it is a pain to search for movies in that sucker,because you could miss alot of titles down under from the top the top stack..!!!

I learned my lesson from one of the previous threads. Ended up getting a P&S movie that is still shrink wrapped.

I got the first one a few days ago. It was the only one in the bin of the 3 NG movies. Lucky me, I only wanted the first anyway.

Just a heads up, Deep Discount DVD has the Naked Gun boxset for $15.99. Which is a better deal considering that you do not have to pay taxes, shipping is free and you get the box for the 3 movies. Plus you do not have to look through that stupid dump bin. Later.

Had to go to 2 WalMarts to get the whole set. Also picked up Hot Shots! and Hot Shots! Part Deux, and Airplane II The Sequel. Now all I need is Airplane.

Damn it, one problem you can't get this on the 20% off sale since they have it as a preorder item. It must have a price drop which take affect 6/28/05.
